SimpleLink MSP432E SDK v4_20_00_12 installation failed

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: MSP-EXP432E401Y


Recently I purchased MSP-EXP432E401Y LaunchPad, then I downloaded and installed ccs_setup_10.4.0.00006.exe successfully.

But, failed installing SimpleLink MSP432E SDK, simplelink_msp432e4_sdk_4_20_00_12.exe.

This setup utility hanged at the end of final installation stage.  I attached its screen shot.

Screen shot with error, execution of simplelink_msp432e4_sdk_4_20_00_12.exe

To make sure, I tried my desktop PC and notebook.  I got the same error.

For the testing purpose, I installed simplelink_msp432p4_sdk_3_40_01_02.exe without any error.

Could you kindly advise me how to avoid/ fix this problem asap ?

Many thanks in advance.

  • Hello HaeSeung,

    The installation completed without issue for me.  I wonder if this is a windows type problem.  Can you right click the .exe and "run as administrator"?

  • Hi, Eddie

    I downloaded simplelink_msp432p4_sdk_3_40_01_02.exe and simplelink_msp432e4_sdk_4_20_00_12.exe via Microsoft Edge.

    During downloading, simplelink_msp432p4_sdk_3_40_01_02.exe showed no issue, but simplelink_msp432e4_sdk_4_20_00_12.exe had some security problem as shown below screen capture. But, I ignore this message and keep it downloaded.

    MSP432E4 SDK Download with Security Warning
    When I installed each product, I got the same error only when installing simplelink_msp432e4_sdk_4_20_00_12.exe. MSP432P4 SDK is installed successfully.  Windows Defender SmartScreen blocked MSP432E4 SDK installation.
    I could not find any file property difference between simplelink_msp432p4_sdk_3_40_01_02.exe and simplelink_msp432e4_sdk_4_20_00_12.exe.  So, I gave up the installation via simplelink_msp432e4_sdk_4_20_00_12.exe.

    I got installed MSP432E4 SDK via Resource Explorer and finished simple verification test.

    Many Thanks and Best Regards,
